Glad to hear you have created something and are moving forward with it. You can try www.apparelsearch.com and click on "production". There are lot`s of resources there. James is right you don`t need a prototype to file a patent application. A non disclosure is always a good idea.
I used to work in the licensing department of my undergrad university. Generally, each school handles their own licensing in-house, or individually farms it out to a licensing firm. The procedure was that potential licensees had to send in a sample, and the licensing director would decide whether it was a suitable product for the school's image, and decide on a fee. I'm sure it was a nightmare for them -- but I got a lot of freebies printed with the logo of schools I didn't attend.
Let me start by saying that if this is a question you've been asking, you are exactly where you should be. If you truly have an invention--something that has not been created before--there is no set way to get it to market and there is no right way. Finding out how to get your product to market is often more relevant to your success than the features and benefits of your invention. In fact, real money-spending consumers don't buy inventions; they buy products. So, shift your approach away from the typical inventing lexicon to how to sell a new product.
